get_post_gallery with Gutenberg

Using birgire’s suggestions, I came up with the following solution that is working well with both the old pre-WP 4.x data and the newer posts that have been added under 5.0.

// if there is a gallery block do this
if (has_block('gallery', $post->post_content)) {
    $post_blocks = parse_blocks($post->post_content);
    $ids = $post_blocks[0][attrs][ids];
// if there is not a gallery block do this
else {
    // gets the gallery info
    $gallery = get_post_gallery( $post->ID, false );
    // makes an array of image ids
    $ids = explode ( ",", $gallery['ids'] );
